Part IISupplementary

1.  In regulation 14 and Part I—

(a)the PM/REF No. of any additive is its EEC packaging material reference number;

(b)the CAS No. of any additive is its CAS (Chemical Abstracts Service) Registry Number, and

(c)the name of any additive is its chemical name,

and to the extent that there is any inconsistency between the CAS No. and the name, the name shall take precedence over the CAS No.

2.  If an additive appearing in Part I as an individual compound also falls within a generic term which appears therein, the restriction (if any) applying to that additive shall be that indicated for the individual compound and the entry applying to the generic term shall be treated as varied to such extent (if any) as is necessary therefor.

3.  If a substance—

(a)identified in Part I is an acid, a phenol or an alcohol and has salts (including double salts) of one or more of the following names (that is to say salts (including double salts) of aluminium, ammonium, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium or zinc), then any such salts (including double salts) shall be treated as included in the specification of that substance; and
